A passenger in Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon's car was cited for marijuana possession when Gordon was pulled over for speeding recently, according to Matthew Florjancic of WKYC.

Gordon was traveling 14 miles-per-hour over the speed limit when he was pulled over on Monday. During the course of the stop, police discovered drugs in the bag of his passenger, who was given a ticket for possession of under 200 grams of marijuana.

Cleveland's top receiver is in the process of appealing a suspension for his second failed drug test, which could result in his being suspended for  the 2014 season.
